    I saw a map that had us on the line of above average / average precipitation for the 08/09 winter season. Then I read a forecast that stated everywhere could have above average precipitation for the 08/09 winter depending on how the hurricane season goes. Then again that's what I read last year too. Who knows, but I think it could be a good season.

    That's right. One day they forecast an 8" snow by the next morning. I watched the radar most of the day and thought we'll be lucky to get a plow able snow but remained ready. Stayed up all night thinking that we would need to got on it early to stay ahead because I plow an apartment complex. Wasn't till 5:00am that they retracted to just flurries. We got a 1.5" dusting. This is just one of about four stories I could tell you just like it.

    Oh man, i feel your pain! One day we had heavy snow warnings for 10-14 inches of snow. Woke up at 4am expecting all this snow, we had nothing, nada, zip! I was so pissed, and so very cold. I did not sleep or eat for daysssssss! I think the weathermen get some type of amusement watching us running around getting ready for nothing.:cry:

    Just in on Foxnews

    Just read this on Foxnews

    The almanac predicts above-normal snowfall for the Great Lakes and Midwest, especially during January and February, and above-normal precipitation for the Southwest in December and for the Southeast in January and February. The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions will likely have an unusually wet or snowy February, the almanac said.

    Check it out its a good read, It maid me happy!

    I will believe it when it happens. I lost more sleep last year from the missed forecasts than I care to remember.

    Okay so its been 80 the past few days, does anyone remember a fall like this? I hope that it's a good sign that it's snowing out west but are the temps here a good sign for winter?

    Around here it was pretty cold for the first few days of october, alot of leaves are falling now! Its just been a crappy pattern trough in the west and a ridge in the east. This will change by the end of the week, we should have below normal temps and lows below 40!

    Did I hear snow?

    I think I heard that we could see snow next week. It was on the radio on the way home Q95 to be exact. I thought that I heard them say Tuesday AM it could. Am I out of my mind? Was I day dreaming? Anyone heard this? :dizzy:
